Nunnsense | Lamar Coming Back To School Is Not Too Far-Fetched

Lamar Jackson

Please don’t think that this article is saying that Lamar Jackson will return to Louisville for his senior year because nobody knows what he will decide. I’m just simply pointing out that there is plenty of reasons for him to return. As much as I would love another year with him, I won’t be upset either way. Whatever is best for Lamar is what I am in favor of. But I am not ready to say that it’s a foregone conclusion that Lamar will enter this years NFL draft. I believe there is a decent chance he returns.

If you follow the NFL mock drafts then you already know that Lamar is projected to go as high as the 2nd pick and as low as late second round. Personally, I only put stock into the mock drafts that use information from NFL scouts. Most of those mock drafts don’t have Lamar being drafted in the first round. The consensus is that there will be 3, possibly 4, quarterbacks taken in the first round and 2 taken in the second. Many of those say that Lamar will be the fifth quarterback taken. But all this is assuming that Southern California quarterback Sam Darnold decides to enter the draft. The rumor is that he is leaning towards returning to school. That means the supply of quarterbacks in the first round might not fit the demand therefore benefitting Lamar. However, if Darold does decide to enter the draft, it seems as though the consensus is that the first 2 quarterbacks taken would be Darnold and Josh Rosen from UCLA.  Read the rest of this entry
